Hugh Stewart Cochrane
Birth: Aug. 4, 1829
Death: Apr. 23, 1884

Indian Mutiny Victoria Cross Recipient. He was a Lieutenant in the 86th Regiment (later The Royal Irish Rifles), British Army during the Indian Mutiny. His VC citation reads "On 1 April 1858 near Jhansi, India, when No. 1 company of the regiment was ordered to take a gun, Lieutenant Cochrane dashed forward at a gallop under heavy musketry and artillery fire, drove the enemy from the gun and kept possession of it until the company came up. He also showed conspicuous gallantry in attacking the rear guard of the enemy when he had three horses in succession shot under him". He later achieved the rank of Colonel. (bio by: derrick unwin)
